Doclisboa 2011 - Caixa Geral de Depósitos Award for best First Film of the Portuguese Competition


Up in the air, the eighth floor of a blue tower. The sixty-year-old marriage of Armando, the eternal proletarian, and Maria, the consumerist housewife, survives. They share their visions like partners in crime, turning daily life into a brief comedy with a running commentary upon what a decaying country still has to offer them. And all of that, they give it back to us, like if it were a mirror, where we can find us laughing at ourselves. The "screens", from where they extract their images, flood the place; be it TV sets, newspapers, radios or even windows overlooking the end of the river Douro and the beginning of the Atlantic Ocean. But while the clocks seem to stop, there are teeth that come up in dreams, pagan poetry, housewives' strikes, a music box that plays "The Internationale", and a grandson behind the lens who intimately gives us the chance of having a closer look at the way we really are.

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
